Christian Persecution in NORTH KOREA


NORTH KOREA
Evangelist Executed for Bible Distribution -
VOM Sources/ World Bible Distribution

A North Korean evangelist has been executed for possessing and distributing a Korean New Testament. World Bible Translation Center has confirmed the incident, even though the details of the death are not available. Pray for the family and friends of this evangelist. Ask God to comfort them and encourage them, knowing that to be absent in this natural body, is to be present with the Lord. Also pray Christians in North Korea will entrust themselves to Christ and preach the gospel without hesitation.


II Timothy 1:7-12
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
8 Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God, 9 who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began, 10 but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, 11 to which I was appointed a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. 12 For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.

    whining about persecution."



    Fundies-is this your latest buzz word?

    The people of this site have been called many things I have never heard them called that;

    Oh yes I am a fan of the people of this site; but whatever...



    Is it...

    Persecution?

    North Korea?

    Christianity?

    Or religion?

    WHich one do you have a problem with?

    I wonder...

    It would first seem that you think that Christians complain too much about persecution...

    But I know it goes deeper with you.

    Would you be one to say that the black man hasn’t faced persecution in the United States or that the Jews haven’t faced persecution? Is it only Christians that you have a problem with?

    For it is obvious that persecution is not what you have in mind.

    Nor do I think North Korea is the issue.

    So is it Christians or is it religion?

    It’s probably God himself; isn’t it?

    Ok; let’s address the real issue here...

    Is it that you don’t believe in God?

    Or is it that you have had a bad "church" experience?

    Well if its a bad church experience---this has nothing to do with Jesus,

    So I am going to move onto “God”:

    If you don’t believe the bible

    1-then you have probably never read it

    2-don’t believe Jesus is the Son of God

    3-maybe; there is a God

    ***********************************

    But notice that you have a problem with those that do believe...

    ~where does that come from? Do you openly despise say Dallas Cowboy” fans?

    Why is it Christians? If you have a problem with “churchianty” I can understand this...

    But you seem to seethe with contempt--with God himself.-huh?

    Tried evolution? You know that the theory was written by Darwin’s sub-par student suffering from malaria? By the way it leads you to what?-ha –whatever!!!

    So what is your real question?

    Or better said, what is your real agenda?

    The question was that of Christian persecution.

    Persecution in any form is wrong, but persecution of religious beliefs is a persecution that strives to take ownership of ones own mind. To give into this persecution is to give up ones own self. For what is a man if he is denied his own mind, why he is no better than a trained farm animal.

    Is man to only serve the society; and is he the property of that society?

    This in itself is the worst kind of slavery.

    Elton john just wrote that he wants all religion banned because of its treatment towards gays.

    Never!!! IT WILL NEVER BE ALLOWED!!! The control of a persons mind belongs not to any society. FOR THIS WOULD MAKE A GOD for those who don’t believe in a god

    And I; yes, even I, would not want to hurt your feelings.

    P.S.
    Please bring out your real issues and don’t hide behind this facade that you are portraying.

  • {{I have called this anonymous person in the first comment an "atheist" because with this comment came a bombardment of posts with an atheist MySpace page link. That MySpcase page could be insulting to many of our readers and we are not here to promote other "agendas"}}
